EDITOR’S NOTE: I am still in shock and can’t believe that Jarvee E. Hutcherson is gone. I took couple hours to do the special design on this post in remembering and loving one of the BEST of the west. Jarvee E. Hutcherson and myself we worked long nights on couple of the projects where I put my name and my brands to show that DIVERSITY were we partner and cooperate because we saw that not every single industry here in America includes Diversity and Inclusion in many fields.

So my dearest friend #JarveeHutcherson (#JarveeEltonHutcherson) and myself we had something in common here in Hollywood to make changes in many fields to see more minority and people of color on high rank positions in the film, television especially in the entertainment industry including government.
